    Sports Eligibility      

    In order to participate in any sport, a student must have a current physical on file. If a student does not have a current physical on file then they will not be allowed to participate. There will be no exceptions. 


    According to the RLAS-116 Student Handbook, a student must meet the below criteria to be eligible to participate in any sport.  As a member of the Illinois Elementary School Association, Round Lake Area School District #116 adheres to and enforces their policies of eligibility. 


    At the middle school level, an athlete must be passing all of their assigned classes to be academically eligible. Details regarding the academic eligibility policy are reinforced each season by the coaching staff. Teachers will submit grades weekly to help monitor students-athletes' grades. If students are found not to be academically eligible, they will not be allowed to participate in events until they bring their grades up to this minimum standard. Behavior will also be monitored. If a student is not in good standing in regards to behavior they will not be permitted to participate. 


    At the middle school, students must attend at least half of the school day. If there is an emergency that prevents an athlete from attending school the athlete’s parent should contact either the Assistant Principal/Athletic Director or Assistant Principal of Student Services for a waiver to the school day attendance/participation policy. Students eligibility to participate  on Saturday after missing the entire school day on Friday will be decided on a case by case basis.    


    By participating in the RLMS athletic program, you are agreeing to the above eligibility requirements.


    Thank you so much for your time and attention in advance, and we look forward to a great season of athletics for our students and families!
